As many of you know we have monitoring the sway bar and surrounding components carefully in the wake of the RD sway bars breaking on several members cars.
This is what we found in looking for an "unknown noise" .
The techs that originally installed the bar became short sighted in trying to quell the squeaking, that they forgot what matters, torq. spec. and some thread lock to keep the bolts from backing out.
The top bolt of the bar mounting clamp seats directly into the bracket welded on the sub-frame (no retaining nut).
We had to bend the clamp back into a "c position", bend the high pressure hose brackets back into place, regrease, remount the sway bar from end link to end link.
THANKFULLY the top bolt was sitting loose on top of the water platter when we removed it , or I would be SOL.
If ANYONE has serviced/replaced your sway bar or any related components, I highly recommend you keep a close eye on the mounts.
